Detailed France visa application centre re-opening information

France uses a number of commercial partners around the world who operate visa application centres. The largest two commercial partners are TLScontact VFS Global, who between them operate approximately 80% of all France visa application centres.

 

Each commercial partner is working with the French government to determine where and when it’s safe to resume operations. Visa application centres will therefore open in a phased manner – which will be subject to change if circumstances require – and not all visa application centres within a given country will open all at once.
